Solar Program Saves Homeowners On A New Roof
Take advantage of this solar and roofing program! By adding solar as part of a roofing solution is a great way to pay for a new roof because you can roll the cost of replacing your roof into the tax credit. Let’s do the math.
Say your roof installation is $20K, and your solar installation is also $20K (actual costs are going to vary, of course; this is just an example). In essence, you are spending $40K for a new roof that with solar not only adds even more value to your home, but lowers your energy bills.
Plus, you get a 30% tax credit* for including solar, so you get back $12K towards the roof + solar installation cost—which means you're only spending $28K on a new roof paired with solar.
And that’s before figuring in any local government or utility rebates!
